Drivewear®, lenses combine a polarizing filter with photochromic technology to improve vision across wide range of conditions encountered in driving.
Most Americans now spend considerable amounts of time in a car. We commute in cars, we run errands in cars and we take a car to virtually all of our activities. Driving involves using our eyes in a wide range of visual conditions, including low light, overcast, bright sun, and high glare. No current lens improves visual function in all these conditions. When Younger Optics worked with Transitions Optical, Inc. to create Drivewear®, our goal was to create a lens that could improve visual function across the full range of conditions encountered behind the wheel.

Younger Optics now offers two videos with information on Drivewear lenses; a 60-second looping video for the patient waiting room, and a three-minute Drivewear training video for eyecare professionals. The first explains the benefits of Drivewear technology at the consumer level, showing and explaining how Drivewear lenses react in real life situations, from driving in overcast and daylight conditions to boating and bike riding outdoors in bright light conditions. The second adds important information about complimentary marketing materials available through Younger. Both videos come in DVD format and are offered at no charge.
From the moment of reflection, light becomes polarized and forms visual noise - blinding glare that interferes with the real image. The only way to eliminate this glare is to place a polarized lens in its path. This fundamental principle gave birth to polarized eyewear. Polarized lenses enhance the most important function of prescription eyewear - improvement of visual acuity. It is the result of polarized lenses' special attribute - ability to block blinding horizontal glare. No other lenses or treatments can achieve this result. Younger Optics created a proprietary technology to match the polarizing film curve with the front curve of the lens in both single vision, multifocal and progressive lenses called NuPolar®. In 1996 NuPolar was awarded the prestigious Award of Excellence by the OLA. It is the first and only sunglass lens to receive this honor.
Younger Optics introduces another effective tool to show the true advantages of polarized lenses - its

Custom clip-on sunglass sytstems have taken the optical industry by storm. At Katz and Klein, we custom make clip-ons to fit specific frames. One of the clip-on products available is from Nu-Clip. In fact, Katz and Klein is an exclusive distributor of both Nu-Clip and Made In The Shade products.
Nu-Clip custom hardware comes in a palette of 18 different colors. These were carefully selected after an intensive study of the most popular colors in the optical frame industry.
Special Transmittance of Lens Materials
The only all-in-one industry source of information about UV, visible, and infrared transmittance of lens materials is available through OLA. This valuable reference resource provides information for most commonly used lens materials and treatments – index of refraction, Abbe number, and density; visible light transmittance; UV radiation transmittance, infrared transmittance: which lenses pass ANSI Z80.3 requirements for non-prescription sunglasses; and which lenses pass ANSI Z87.1 requirements for welding filters. Updated information on this valuable material will be distributed as new lens materials are developed.
